Our scene begins as a telephone rings,
She chokes a gasp at the awful news it brings,
A phone call she's been avoiding,
She knows he's reached the end.
Hooked up to the resporator,
It breathes life into my calloused lungs,
My heart beats getting fainter,
I know my time has come.
It's getting colder been trying to show her,
That I'm not the one to be there beside her now,
I'm crossing over can no one console her?
Alone she'll remain,
With no way to end this pain.
Now I realize the things that I,
The things that I have done to her,
Why you gave your love with all your heart,
With all that a heart can give.
Intentions that you'll never know,
The reason why I had to lead astray,
I gave you a lifetime of pain and remorse,
Mistakes that were never yours,
The wrong in my life can never be right,
It flashes before my eyes.
How did it come to this?
His mind is working harder than before,
A thousand thoughts in seconds,
His last thoughts of her,
Of how he and he alone,
Had destroyed the once vibrant spririt,
That he had coveted so deeply,
The last pain he ever causes the only woman,
Who ever loved him.
Bright light is calling me upward,
I follow and leave you below,
Now you're all alone
And I leave you with nobody by your side,
Not to hurt you ever again,
Never break your spirit for me,
Now I'm all alone,
Still I cherish the things that you've given to me,
The bright light is calling me upward,
I follow and leave you below.
